The “Be Thankful” Challenge

The “Be Thankful” Challenge comes to me from Rob at Art by Rob Goldstein.  Thank you, Rob! 🙂

The Challenge Rules:

• Share this image in your blog post
• Write about 5 people in your life you are thankful for
• Write about 5 things in 2015 that you are thankful for
• Spread the love and challenge 5 other blogs to take part

I’m applying the rules creatively and I hope this is okay!
